Humanæ Vitæ

It has all come to pass.


One Response to Humanæ Vitæ: 40 Years Later

    “there is the rapid increase in population which has made many fear that world population is going to grow faster than available resources… This can easily induce public authorities to be tempted to take even harsher measures to avert this danger.”

    As Charles Colson pointed out on a recent radio broadcast, it is a fairly simple thing (as recent history has shown) for governments to create policies and foster social climates unfavorable to the birthing and raising of children.

    It is virtually impossible however (he pointed out) for those same institutions to be effective in promoting the opposite. E.g., incentives to have children that are now in force in Russia — equivalent to nearly two years’ wages have done almost nothing to increase birth rates there.

    Creating a (literally) unGodly mess is easy. Fixing it takes the intervention of the same God that was once rejected. Secular solutions cannot put it all back once Pandora has loosed such mischief.
